    Report ENV788 from the Licensing Officer.

    Additional documents:




    That the Licensing Committee approve the renewal of the application for a Sex Shop Licence in accordance with Schedule 3 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 (as amended by the Policy and Crime Act 2009).


    Members had been circulated with report CSL778 which concerned an application to renew a Sex Shop Licence for the premises known as Pulse & Cocktails, A1 southbound, Stoke Rochford.


    In accordance with the Authority’s procedures, all applications relating to sex establishments, with the exception of uncontested transfer applications, must be heard by the Licensing Committee.   Each application had to be determined on its own merits; however, refusal of a licence could only be on certain mandatory and/or discretionary grounds as outlined within the report.


    The applicant had run a sex shop since April 2009 and no complaints had been received during this time.  The applicant was not varying the licence in any way and was only applying to renew the licence as it currently stood:


    Monday – Sunday 09:00 – 22:00hrs (including Bank Holidays)


    The applicant was not in attendance as no representations had been made to the application and it was not deemed necessary.


    The options available to the Committee with regard to the application were:


    -       To renew the application as applied for

    -       To renew the application with modifications and/or additional conditions

    -       Refuse the renewal.  If having considered the renewal application the committee decides to refuse it, it must provide the applicant with the reasons for the decision in writing.


    Members considered the application before them having regard to relevant policies and procedures surrounding licensing the premises.  As there had been no complaints made from any of the responsible authorities, members of the public or nearby businesses, it was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to approve the licence as applied for.
